Dewitz, Peter; Graves, Michael F.
Reading Teacher, v68 n2 p149-158 Oct 2014
The goal of the Common Core State Standards, college and career readiness, is dependent of teaching for transfer--the ability to apply the knowledge, skills and disposition learned in one context to another or future context. In this article we discuss the types of transfer, automatic application or deliberate conscious application. We then discuss what teachers can do to insure that students will transfer what they learn to new and future contexts.
